Yes, this is correct.  I have a lot of e-mail addresses and it's just easier
to virtualize the entire domain (hence the mysql hook).

I've tried putting in the variable in mm_cfg.py to no avail.  Still the same
results.  I've also tried setting mydomain to a destination (
hotdog.mikesoh.com) and that didn't work either.  And tried the default
(localdomain) and that failed as well.
